The Fourth Annual Gawad Kalinga Global Summit will be held in Toronto on June 8-9, 2012 at the Allstream Centre, Exhibition Place, Canada's greenest conference centre. Delegates are expected to attend from across Canada, USA, Philippines and other countries.

  • To inspire and engage young people (ages 18-34) to volunteer and make a difference in their communities
  • To showcase how Gawad Kalinga Center for Social Innovation and the Enchanted Farm have become the platform for social enterprises to create sustainability for our GK communities

Community Development Programs
